We at Deanta are excited to announce the launch of our company-wide rebrand. We haven’t changed our name, Deanta – which means fully-fledged or complete in Gaelic – because it very much reflects who we are as a company, and our Irish origins. However, we have changed a lot of other things. Our focus has always been on adapting to the ever-changing nature of the publishing industry, and to be innovative and forward-thinking at all times. We felt that it was time to refresh our branding and business model to reflect where we are as a business, and what we are all about.
Due to continued expansion, we are seeking a project manager to handle academic books. The project manager will liaise with publishers; authors; freelance copy editors, proofreaders and indexers; and in-house departments including typesetting and artwork to see books through their life cycle. The successful candidate will require editorial experience as well as project management experience in the field of academic publishing.

Darren Ryan, CEO of Deanta, will look at how utilising a truly collaborative cloud-based work environment, with XML editing functionality, can streamline production workflow, improving productivity, communication and the associated costs.
One of the discussion topics at the IDPF conference at this year’s BEA event pertained to the notion of a format that allows for integrated online and offline reading – a convergence of web and EPUB.
